Extra-Long Cannon Balls & 4 Other Things You May Have Missed

Social media commentator Keith Fenimore takes his shots at what’s been trending this week. [July 27 – August 2]

1] A very clever cannon ball enthusiast had the longest hang time in the history of cannon balling, thanks to creatively using Vine.


The last time I saw something dragged out that long without even enjoying the big splash at the end, I was watching a Roland Emmerich movie.

2] Actress Amanda Seyfried stars as notorious porn star Linda Lovelace in the new movie Lovelace (out August 9).
We’re guessing this film will attract fewer viewers in trench coats than the original. What? Because it’s out in August! Get your minds out of the gutter.

3] A-Rod’s on the cusp of being suspended, and possibly booted out of baseball forever, if he’s found guilty of using performance enhancing drugs.
Regardless of the outcome, A-Rod will still be able to hit on baseball fans - he'll just do it from the stands, as opposed to from the field.

4] In this new British Airways ad, a South African Rugby player - who previously raced against a cheetah and won - went head-to-head with an airbus A380, and actually beat the plane to the finish line:

 


So, not only is the rugby player faster than the plane, he also doesn’t charge for extra bags. SNext time you fly, go Rugby!

5] In a survey of smart phone users, more customers chose the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note 2 over the Apple iPhone 5 for overall customer satisfaction. They polled in three categories: Quality, overall value, and loyalty. 
Quality and loyalty are criteria that are clearly not shared by TGI Friday’s, Riley Cooper, or whoever buys the toilet paper for the Maxim bathroom.
